In an extensive interview with Polygon, World of Warcraft director Ion Hazzikostas discussed the game's journey since Warlords of Draenor-an expansion with poor endgame content partly responsible for driving almost 4 million subscribers away.

World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth includes new features and content that will put heroes' dedication and fortitude to the test.

While World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth feels like a return to the beginnings of World of Warcraft, players who want to experience a good old-fashioned Orcs vs. Humans war without having to buy a new expansion will be happy to know that Blizzard is working on its own vanilla server. There are 10,000 characters in it, but here's the insane part: each figure is based on an individual BlizzCon attendee's actual in-game character.

As a champion of the Horde, travel to the Zandalar empire to persuade the trolls to lend their naval might.

Amazon Key Allows Couriers Into Customers' Homes and People Are Confused
Amazon unveiled a new service today that will let its couriers deliver boxes inside your home when you're not around. This system is another way Amazon is making it easier for customers to receive packages quickly and securely.

Scour Azeroth's myriad uncharted Islands and conquer an ever-changing array of enemies, environments, and objectives. The Alliance will be exploring the Kul'Tiras archipelago, while the Horde will be penetrating the jungle depths of Zandalar. On these new continents, players will recruit new "allied races" to bolster the ranks of their faction. Earn the favor of the Highmountain tauren, Void elves, Dark Iron dwarves, and others to create a new character of that race and add their strength to your faction. Battle in groups of three as you race against cunning rival intruders-or enemy players-to collect each island's resources and fuel the war effort.

Charge Into the Warfronts: Fight on the battlefields of a large-scale, 20-player cooperative Warfront to claim a key strategic location.

Battle for Azeroth will see the removal of the Legion expansion's Artifact Weapons. The opening cinematic featured a gritty siege in Lordaeron, with Varian Wrynn leading the Allied forces against Sylvanas Windrunner and the Horde in a castle. Instead, a new system will focus on a necklace called the Heart of Azeroth.

Each World of Warcraft expansion comes with new features, usually in the form of new dungeons and raids, a raised level cap, a new PvP map, and plenty of new sweet, sweet loot. If you're wondering when you can jump back into the fray for yourself, you'll have to wait a bit longer, Blizzard has yet to announced a final release date.
